As a development hub for national standards in tire engineering, SNTON is now establishing new monitoring procedures with a Ventuz powered installation that gives detailed insight into the plant’s operation. This is the first case of Ventuz being used in industrial automation data visualization project in China.
The application, which was designed and created by Chinese agency Anystage, is permanently installed at the company’s showroom and serves both important business partners as well as internal use. By tapping into the live data from Manufacturing System and Energy Management, the Ventuz application visualizes the entire production line in depth. Through interactive technology, users can dive deeper into certain areas, focusing on a specific stage of production or take a closer look at a certain data set. Since all data is streamed into application dynamically, all numbers and figures are always up to date and displayed in intuitive designs for quick understanding.
The goal of this setup is to use the live data to optimize Enterprise Resource Planning by identifying opportunities to streamline workflows or implement new technologies. Through the vivid visualization, managers and decision makers are presented with all the information necessary to make the right changes.
